Down to Earth Coffee sausage roll review

Down to Earth Coffee sausage rolls

About Down to earth coffee

Down to Earth Coffee is situated beside Palmeira Square in Hove. The front of the shop has large glass windows displaying handsome looking baked goods. Due to Covid, I’ve only ever been served through the doorway but it looks comfortable inside and much like a Melbourne coffee shop. Down to Earth Coffee have a second branch in Brighton but I’ve yet to visit.

1. Appearance

Did the sausage roll look appetising? Was it lovingly displayed in the shop window?

The sausage roll was sitting in the shop window alongside an offer of mustard or chutney.


2. Price

How much did you pay for it? Was it good value for money?

£3, seemed a fair price.


3. Packaging

Was it carefully wrapped? Did it arrive home intact?

Classic brown paper bag with very little grease transfer.

Did it have a satisfying weight? Was it reassuringly dense?

A good amount of heft to it, not a long chap but chubby.

Was it warm and ready to eat or cold on arrival?

Stone Cold Steve Austin with no offer to heat it up.


6. Pastry

Was it buttery and flaky? Did it hold together?

Not the worst pastry but certainly not flaky and buttery.


7. Quality of meat or filling

Was the filling substantial or did you mainly chew air?

Dense sausage filling but too much onion for my liking.


8. Flavour

Was the sausage roll delicious and well-seasoned?

Good flavour but needed more pepper.


9. Satisfaction

Were you left satisfied or wanting more?

I felt a bit sick afterwards but that’s because I ate too quickly.

Did anything warrant bonus points? Eg. a little pot of mustard or friendly service from the staff?

Bonus points for the small pot of English mustard that it came with.
